What are the global limits to sustainable growth and development? Can we stay within them and how? Join a special evening of reflection on our common future, insights gained from a landmark publication, and a celebration of the life and wisdom of Donella Meadows, a beloved pioneer in the effort to heal our planet. 

The program includes special guests Sandrine Dixson-Declève, Co-President of The Club of Rome, which published an early call to action with “The Limits to Growth” in 1972 and an update in 2022; Bill McKibben, Schumann Distinguished Scholar in Residence at Franklin Environmental Center, and an introduction by Middlebury’s President Laurie Patton.  Students Olivia Reposa ’24 and Dylan Taylor ‘24 will moderate the Q&A.

We hope to see you in person, but joining by Zoom is also possible by registering right here
